Propagation methods: seeds. 700 - 900 seeds per 1 gram. 1000 seedlings per 5 - 6 grams of seeds sown. Seeds germinate within 8-12 days at 15°C. Seeds stay viable for 2-3 years. Seeds are sown in hotbeds or boxes in April. Seedlings grow fast, do not need pricking out. Seedlings are replanted to the final growing place. Some flower growers advice to sow seeds to the final growing place between the start of April and the star of May.
